On May 3rd, 2023, the International Office had a lively International Day with Summer Fest at the Campus Schöneberg. HWR Berlin President Prof. Dr. Andreas Zaby and International Office Director Ingrid Sperber opened the day with an inspiring speech about how a semester abroad helps students grow personally and academically. The Foyer of House B was full of international students at market stands telling about their home universities. HWR Berlin students could have a chat and an international snack at each of the stands. The AStA (student government group) stand was also quite popular, as they were giving out free ice-cold summer drinks and inviting students to come to their soon-to-be founded International Club. Later in the day, all students were invited to join in on the Speed Networking event with returned HWR Berlin students.

On May 4th, 2023 the International Days continued online with webinars telling about the great Double Degree programs and the many scholarships the HWR Berlin has to offer, especially those for ecological travel and students with special circumstances. Also, many students took part in the presentations on how to apply and language requirements.  In the afternoon, the International Club had its Kick-Off gathering at the new opening of the Café Geschmacklos from the AStA.

More than 400 students took part in the International Days with Summer Fest.
